Actress Lee Sung Kyung is busy, busy, busy these days! 


MBC revealed that they were considering casting her as the female lead in a new Wednesday-Thursday drama entitled 'Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Ju.'  A rep stated on June 30, "It is true that Lee Sung Kyung is a candidate for the female lead.  We're still in the casting stage.  Nothing's been decided."


YG Entertainment likewise said on this day, "Lee Sung Kyung is positively reviewing her appearance in 'Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Ju.'"

    If you google Jang Mi Ran, who this drama is loosely based on, Lee Sung Kyung looks nothing like her nor does she look anything like how a weightlifter in general should even look like. There is no way anyone would believe that she could lift over 100kg or more. Dramaland is definitely stretching things if they want us to believe that LSK would make a believable weightlifter.
